AN economic strategy for the next 15 years in Ceredigion has been developed to support the growth of the county’s prosperity.

At scrutiny this week, councillors will discuss the strategy and the work that underpins it before the final sign-off by cabinet later in the month.

The thriving communities overview and scrutiny committee will focus on the draft strategy for 2020-35 which aims to inform the council’s “approach and action to support the growth of the economy of Ceredigion over the next 15 years.”

Qualitative and quantitative data has been collated over the last six months to show the current economic picture in Ceredigion, a report to Wednesday’s (March 4) meeting states.

It adds that as well as the draft strategy, an economic baseline report and a feedback report on a public consultation has also been produced.

The views of a task and finish group set up to discuss the plan, meeting on three occasions, will also be presented to the meeting.

The “emerging themes from the consultation” and issues to be tackled are included with a focus on four main priority areas – People, Enterprise, Place and Connectivity.

The draft strategy document will be presented to cabinet on March 17, and any revisions accepted from scrutiny will be included before a formal public consultation.
